An empty paint canvas sits in the corner of a room.

of each of us.

On A Paper Chase 

Sophomore composition — We 
remember it well. The first real re- 
search paper complete with foot- 
notes and bibliogrpahy — WOW! 

It began one gray morning during 
the semester, the teacher an- 
nounced that a paper would be due 
— "When? In six weeks? No prob- 

Relief was felt by all of us. We 
could obtain legitimate passes from 
our teachers to visit the library during 
studies. This project was looking bet- 
ter already! 

The working bibliography was 
quickly written. It seemed foolish to 

waste index cards for sources but 
sometimes you have to humor the 
teacher. Outlines weren't too diffi- 
cult either. Who says there has to be 
a "B" if you have an "A"? 

Somehow we made it. The paper 
was turned in on time. Footnotes 
and bibliography seemed to make 
sense. We tried not to plagiarize and 
hoped that we hadn't made too 
many typographical errors. The 
grade was important, but the sense 
of accomplishments meant more. 
One more milestone had been sur-

feet hang over the edge of the bed I 
have now." 

— Tommy Julian

Those gremlins that crowded the halls 
last year as 8th graders have returned this 
time as bona fide SHS students. 

The adjustment to high school life was 
not as difficult for the Class of 1990 as it 
usually is for incoming freshmen. Due to 
the Wells Jr. High renovation, this class 
spent a year within the school. It was that 
period of time that was so difficult. 

"We were put here and should have 
been put in with the others. We were the 
lowest of the low and we were always 
being picked on," bemoaned Brian Skon- 

The greatest fear in September was ini- 
tiation. Having lived through that rite of 
passage, freshmen faced other tasks. 
Stephen Cournoyer mentioned the rotat- 
ing schedule as the hardest especially 
"the lunch periods which were really con- 

In considering the good and bad sides 
of these two years all ninth graders would 
probably echo the words of Brian Skon- 
ieczny who remarked that being a fresh- 
men is far better than being an eighth 
grader "... because instead of being un- 
derneath the bottom of the pile, we're 
only on the bottom!"

SAT's, At What Price? 

It seems that there is only one 
thing on the minds of the juniors and 
seniors H S, and it isn't what you 
would expect. What is going 
through everyone's mind, or at least 
the minds of the college bound stu- 
dents, is the Scholastic Aptitude Test 
and the Preliminary Scholastic Apti- 
tude Test. 

The SAT's and PSAT's seem to af- 
fect most, of the upperclassmen. 
Just how important are these tests, 
and how much preparation should 
go into the test taking? 

Well, at SHS there is a lot of em- 
phasis placed upon the SAT. So 
much, in fact, that two courses have 
been offered to ensure that stu- 
dents are fully prepared to take this 
crucial test. 

The first class is titled "SAT VER- 
BAL" and is taught jointly within the 
school's English curriculum by Mrs. Ja- 
net Poirier and Miss Nancy Swiacki. It 
deals with the verbal portion of the 

There is no Math course offered 
that deals only with the SAT's, so one 
teacher decided to do something 
about it. Dr. Mary Cashmon offers 
her own Math course in preparation 
for the SAT's every Wednesday 
after school, free of charge. 

When asked if it were worth one 
afternoon a week to participate in 
this program, one student replied, 
"I'll do anything to raise my SAT 

We can take that as a yes.

Is There a Doctor in the Gym? 

Dr. Hoogasian — the athlete, the 
scholar. This man tor fourteen years 
has been improving his life, as well as 
the lives of those he teaches. He 
tries, in his work, to instill his own phi- 
losophy in everyone. 

"Have something to shoot for. I've 
always said, "Set your goals high and 
set your steps to attain them. Al- 
ways finish what you start.'" 

These words are not only spoken, 
but are a part of the man's lifestyle. 
In college he reigned for two years 
as the New England Collegiate pole 
vault champion. This past year he 
achieved a silver medal in the open 
pole vault in the Bay State Games. In 
New England's oldest open compe- 
tition, he received the New England 
Track Athletics Congress Pole Vault 
Gold Medal for 1986. This year he 
also received a Doctoral Degree in 
Educational Administration. 

"It's a vehicle for furthering myself 
in other school systems. If an oppor- 

tunity arises, I'll go after it." 

For the present, he has left the sci- 
ence classroom and entered the 
realm of physical education. A doc- 
tor in the gym? 

"Athletes are usually given the 
'dumb jock' image. There should be 
a balance between academic and 
physical. We should engage in 

It seems that it is in the gym that Dr. 
Hoogasian has found fulfillment. 

"It's been my most rewarding ex- 
perience. I'm very happy with what I 
do here. The boys come eager and 
enthusiastic. Everybody likes to take 
gym. Teaching gym reflects my lifes- 
tyle: physical fitness and academ- 

Dr. Hoogasian is an example of 
achievement. He has achieved suc- 
cess in both athletics and academ- 
ics. He is living proof that by setting 
one's goals high, anything is possible.

Getting Psyched Up 

Rallies provide the fans and play- 
ers with inspiration and school spirit. 
As you enter the gym, you can hear 
the echoes of students shouting 87, 
88, 89, and 90. 

The first rally helps the freshmen 
make a Preakthrough. When upper- 
classmen talk aPout rallies, freshmen 
have no real concept as to the 
amount of work put into them. 

Sophomores have adjusted and 
Pegun to develop ideas for the 
years to come. They learn to pre- 

pare ahead of time in hopes of tak- 
ing 1st place in skit and poster com- 

By junior year, the time and effort 
is well known. This year's juniors were 
lucky enough to have had Craig 
Boisvert who was crowned Ms. Tur- 
key freshmen year. This gave them a 
basis for their Thanksgiving Day skit. 
This year the seniors will graduate 
with a final victory. This made them 
realize that if a class works together, 
they can emerge winners!

For the past 67 years there has 
been rivalry between the South- 
bridge Pioneers and the Bartlett Indi- 
ans. Some years Southbridge has 
come out victorious, and some 
years the Indians have been the vic- 
tors. Unfortunately, on this Thanks- 
giving Day in 1987, Bartlett 
squeaked by in the last 3 minutes to 
rally to a win. 

For SHS, it was an agonizing de- 
feat. The Pioneers entered the 
game with a respectable overall re- 
cord of 5-5, 3-1 in the conference. 
After the first half, it seemed certain 
to Southbridge fans that the Pio- 
neers would win. But luck was with 
the Indians, and the Pioneers just 
couldn't seem to click. With the loss 
of Marty Anderson in the 3rd quarter, 
Southbridge seemed to lose their 
momentum. From then on, it was 
Bartlett's game. 

The Pioneers kept in the game and 
gave fans a performance to be 
proud of. John Marino and Tim Ba- 
chand were chosen as all-stars from 
the game.

Amy McKinstry and Sandra Lanctot,

Cheerleading competition at 
Bridgewater State College. Under 
the guidance of first year coach Syl- 
via Tashjian, the squad, much like 
the football team, started their 
practice routine during the early 

Where would cheerleaders be 
without their football team? Obvi- 
ously, rigorous summer practices 
paid off for both the varsity and ju- 
nior varsity teams. Second year 
coach Jeff Theodoss has instilled in 
his players a winning attitude which 
shows on the field. 

Together the cheerleaders and 
the football players have given the 
Pioneer fans PRIDE!

Playing the Field 

This year's varsity field hockey 
team had an exceptionally out- 
standing season. The squad ended 
up with an overall record of seven 
wins, three losses, and four ties. It 
was unification and sportsmanship 
that helped qualify them for the dis- 
tricts, and although they were elmin- 
ated in the first game of District play, 
they gave Southbridge High some- 
thing to be proud of. 

The SHS junior varsity field hockey 
squad did not fare as well as the var- 
sity team, however, they did show a 
valiant effort as a team made up of 
mostly beginners. Under the leader- 
ship of first year coach Jeanine Lam- 
bert, the players learned the funda-

Getting Their Kicks 

On October 10, 1986 the SHS soc- 
cer team prepared physically and 
mentally for their shot at defeating 
the Auburn Dandies. Auburn, being 
the big rival at the time, came to 
West Street Field ready to dominate 
the Pioneers for the last time during 
the season. 

Southbridge came out strong in 
the first half with Co-Captain Da- 
vone Ketnouvong, Viengkeo Sa- 
vankham, and Chris Gosk playing a 
solid offense. While in the backfield 
Southbridge's goalie, Jose Sanchez 
shut out the Auburn offense for the 
last time. 

Though the game ended in a 0-0 

tie Southbridge was able to leave 
feeling victorious knowing Auburn 
would return home in awe. 

Another highlight of the team's 6- 
4-5 season was first year goalie, Jose 
Sanchez being place as one of the 
number one goalies on the Border 
Conference Team, along with cen- 
ter halfback Davone Ketnouvong. 

Coach Walter Gosk summed up 
the season appropriately, 'losing 4 
out of 15 games wasn't discourag- 
ing for our team. The underclass- 
men, next year, should be able to 
carry the team into a Border Confer- 
ence spot."

The Cross Country team started 
out the new season with a vote of 
confidence given to them by first 
year coach, Ronald Giovanello with 
his assistance, the team, once again 
continued to build. 

Unfortunately, 1986 was a year 
that S.H.S. Cross Country was pla- 
gued by injuries, absences, and 
league technicalities. 

Although they did not have a win- 
ning season, the outlook for next 
year is very hopeful. The team is ex-

Sports Magazine 

Football — A Sport For Males Only? 

It's the fourth down, three yards to 
go. The ball is snapped and passed 
to a receiver. He catches it, then 
takes off. The defense charges after 
him. Wait! It's not a him; it's a her! 
What do we do now? Kick her off 
the field? 

Thus, the question remains, does a 
girl have what it takes to be a foot- 
ball player? Ronnie Splaine believes, 
"Girls can't take the abuse that men 
can, so they shouldn't be playing 

The majority of the girls polled said 
they would be able to handle them- 
selves on the field. "We should have 
the right to play football, but I don't 
think I could take getting tackled by 
a 3001b. guy," expressed Erica Kan- 

Adam Hmielowski had a different 
idea. "Being on a football team you 
have to trust every person on that 
team to fulfill his duties, and to do 
this, physical strength is a necessity. 
I'd consider anyone a minus that 
couldn't handle themself on the 
field, and since the law of nature dic- 
tates that men are predominantly 
stronger than women she would get 
blown off the field every play." 

Tim George said that he wouldn't 
mind having a girl on the team, "as 
long as she could prove herself." 
One football player revealed, 
"When I first started playing football, 
I went up against a girl and hurt her, 
and was penalized." 

Could girls be an asset to a sport 
that has been "all males", since who 
knows when? Should women stick to 
cooking and needlepoint instead of 
football? The decision is up to you! 
— Kristen Clapp 

A Big Price To Pay 

Long hours of practice, 
bloodhsed, bruises and battered 
bones! Is it worth it? Goals, Touch- 
downs, victories, districts! How much 
does all of this mean to SHS athletes? 

"A lot," said sophomore football 
player Aaron Poirier. "Hardwork, 
dedication and time are worth the 
feelings you get by playing." 

A definite sense of satisfaction is 
generated when the grueling hours 
of practice finally pay off. 

Unfortunately, most teams don't 
win every game. There are ups and 
downs to every sport. 

"Winning, Districts, feelings of ac- 
complishment, losing, practice, no 
time for yourself," are some highs 
and lows according to sophomore 
Nikki Arsennault. 

Most of these feelings follow the 
athletes off the field. 

"Responsibilities, accomplish- 
ments, and mistakes," are the feel- 
ings that stick with Aaron Poirier long 
after the football game has ended. 

"Sports take up alot of time. They 
drain a lot of energy from you. You 
sometimes have to stay up late at 
night to finish your homework," ex- 
plained Nikki Arsenault. 

Obviously, all of the sacrifices are 
worth it. SHS athletes are willing to 
dedicate themselves to their sport 
and they try to represent the school 
in a positive way. Some would like to 
continue sports into college, while 
others play just because they like 
the sport. Whatever their reasons for 
playing, sports seem to be important 
to all players. 

— Michelle Livernois 

It's Way Past Your Bedtime 

At least twenty SHS students are 
standing around Hospital Spa on 
South Street. Someone looks at the 
clock. "Oh, it's already 9:15. Don't 
you think you should start heading 
home now?" Everyone laughs at the 
sarcastic remarks as a few football 
players walk away, scuffing their 

Everyone agrees curfews for foot- 
ball are important. Sophomore foot- 
ball players Adam Hmielowski and 
Rico Giovanello both replied, "Cur- 
fews are much needed." 

Aaron Poirier tells us why. "It could 
mean playing or not the next day. 
Getting rest really helps during the 

A lot of people wonder how the 
coaches know if you stay out later. 
Sophomore Aaron Poirier decided 
that he'd answer this one. "They call 
your house and you have to speak 
to them." 

Adam Hmelowski added, "word 
of mouth will also get you in trouble." 

With all this in mind, you may be 
curious to know if the team thinks the 
sport is worth going in early for, or if 
they regret playing because of the 
curfew. Once again, Adam Hem- 
lowski had the words that spoke for 
everyone, "Definitely, we work very 
hard and it would be foolish to jeop- 
ardize playing a game." 

— Sharon Fontaine 



Theodoss Gets 100th Win 

On January 6, 1987 Coach Jeff 
Theodoss won fhe 100th game of his 
career as the Varsity Grils defeated 
North Brookfield 53-37. 

The Pioneers dominated from the 
beginning by jumping to a quick 10- 
4 lead, with Lisa Ayotte providing 8 
points. In the second quarter the In- 
dians closed the gap, tying the 
score at 13, Southbridge then ran off 
with 17 unanswered points. Melissa 
Rapo led this surge with 13 points. 
Nicolle LaBarge paced Pioneer re- 
bounding by pulling down 8 re- 
bounds to go with Lisa Ayotte's 7. 

The Pioneers raised their lead to 22 
points in the third quarter allowing 
them to coast home with a victory. 
Melissa Rapo had a game high of 22 

points along with Lisa Ayotte's 13. 

The Varsity, after having lost 3 of 
last year's starters, have had an out- 
standing season. In the Becker Tour- 
nament, Southbridge defeated 
Madson Park 42-21. Lisa Ayotte and 
Jennifer Ferron paced this offensive 
attack with 10 and 8 points. That vic- 
tory qualified the girls for the finals, 
their opponent, Shepherd Hill, hap- 
pened to be their biggest rival in the 
Border Conference. Southbridge 
took a 12-9 lead midway through 
the second quarter but the Rams ran 
off 12 straight points. The Pioneers 
kept creeping closer, but time ran 
out before they could attempt the 
tying shot. Southbridge lost 37-35.

We Belong to a World That Must Be Strong 

As the J.V. game comes to an 
end, the anxiety of the fans can be 
felt while the song "Dreams" echoes 
throughout the gym. The Varsity 
Basketball team, led by Vin Marino 
enters and starts their pre-game 
warm-ups. It is in these preliminary 
moments that the attitude of the 
team can be perceived. 

Practice makes perfect, doesn't 
it? Most players spend approximate- 
ly 15 hours each week practicing. 
They have to sacrifice jobs and time 
with their friends and girlfriends. 
These practices, consisting of agility 
drills, foul shooting, lay-ups, condi- 
tioning, jump shots, and offensive/ 
defensive plays, take place 5 days a 

Time commitment doesn't stop 
here. Most players play Summer Bas- 
ketball and in their free time, any- 
where from 2-10 hours may be spent 
playing basketball during the off- 
season. Kenny Amiott said, "I like to 
play as much as I possibly can year 

All players have different methods 
for psyching themselves up when it 
comes to game time. 

Randy Garneau said, "I like to sit in 
silent prayer with no disturbances." 

While on the other hand, Chris 
Gosk said, "I listen to music and read 
letters from a former coach." 

Most players feel basketball is a 
very important part of their lives. This 
is shown through their determination 
and commitment to the team. They 
feel that they must always play to 
the best of their ability and give 
100% to their team. It is important for 
all players to make all games and 
practices, have a positive attitude, 
and uphold sportsmanship. This team 
unity leads the players to give each 
other moral support both on and off 
the court. 

The continuation of a basketball 
career is pondered on by many of 
the players. With their talent, dreams 
for the future, and determination, 
they will surely succeed.

How do you feel the song "Dreams" 
represents your team? 

"Because we are always striving to im- 
prove and reach the sky." 

— John Marino 

"Dreams is an inspirational song that 
motivates our team to reach higher 
and higher to achieve our goals." 

— Chris Gosk 

"Our team has dreams that we strive 
to achieve." 

— Harry Theodoss 

"Last year seemed like a dream be- 
cause we weren't supposed to be 
good and we proved everyone 
wrong. Hopefully our dreams will con- 
tinue and we will be an even better 
team than last year."

fulfill them. Dreams represent our team 
because it psyches us up for the game

Sparks For The Future 

The determination of a basketball 
player can be seen as early as Fresh- 
man year. With such a large turnout 
of future Varsity players this year, a 
Freshman Basketball team was rein- 

Kevin Berthiaume and Michael 
Bousquet by showing their skill and 
effort, already have a seat on the 
Junior Varsity bench this year. 

These Freshman players strive to 
improve each day, hoping to catch 
the eye of the J.V. or Varsity coach. 

The J.V. team this year, was 
sparked by the playing of transfer 

and foreign students. Randall Gar- 
neau and Ken Curtis, both transfer 
students, have been an asset on the 
boards by averaging 8 rebounds a 

Freshman Ken Amiott, has been 
deadly from underneath, picking up 
offensive rebounds and tossing 
them up and in for two points. Stavre 
Vesovski from Yugoslavia, has been 
improving daily, and is also looking 
forward to playing Varsity next year. 
His height gave the team the oppor- 
tunity to diversify their playing meth-

Thank You! 

On October 17, more than 60 SHS 
students and faculty donated 
blood. This bi-annual event was held 
as a sign of support to their injured 

On September 4, seniors Maureen 
Doyle and Jennifer Gagnon, junior 
Alyssa Ricci and freshmen Barbara 
Doyle were seriously injured in an 
automobile accident which claimed 
the life of Melissa Lavallee. 

The injured had been given blood 
from the community supply and this 
year's blood drive was sponsored in 
an attempt to replenish it. 

The overwhelming turnout was a 

result of the altruistic spirit of the stu- 
dents. Many individuals who would 
normally be afraid to participate 
were given courage by their desire 
to have, as Principal Joseph P. Bialy 
said, lv . . . something positive come 
out of the tragedy." 

Along with the students, a show of 
support was demonstrated by facul- 
ty and adults from the community. 
As one student stated, "Maybe we 
had no control over what has hap- 
pened, but maybe we can do 
something to help others in the fu-

The SHS Student Council is an or- 
ganization that has again continued 
its tradition ot excellence in giving 
the students more diverse activities 
during the school year. 

According to the council's consti- 
tution its main purpose is to give "the 
entire student body a higher voice in 
the planning and operation of the 
activities among the students, facul- 
ty and administration." To these pur- 
poses they dedicate themselves 
and their energies. 

The council consists of 26 mem- 
bers; 7 Seniors, 6 Juniors, 5 Sopho- 
mores, and 4 Freshmen. The four 
class presidents make-up the re- 
mainder, with the possibility of 5 
members-at-large being "voted in" 

during the school year. 

Although many responsibilities of 
the council are taken for granted: 
morning announcements, various 
fundraising activities, the blood drive 
and the organization of new com- 
mittees and activities, a few are 
greatly appreciated by the school 
population; presentations by Cam- 
fel, the slave auction, and depend- 
ing on the year, spring day or winter 

The popularity of the Student 
Council can be accounted for be- 
cause of the fact that it provides 
control, direction and involvement 
for the students of Southbridge High

Fundraisers Raise Questions 


If it is the minority of students par- 
ticipating in the fundraisers, should all 
the students share in the same bene- 
fits? "More people should partici- 
pate to make the class successful," 
commented Kara Kokoszka, Vice- 
President of the sophomore class. 
Approximately one third of the soph- 
omores participated in this year's 
magazine drive. 

Prizes seem to be one incentive 
that persuades some students to 
sell. "A wide variety of prizes is best 
because it will interest the most peo- 
ple," remarked sophomore John 
Shaw. The Gumby T-shirts and the 

free record or cassette encouraged 
sophomores to sell their guota. 

Perhaps extra benefits could be 
given to those students who do par- 
ticipate. Maybe credit should be 
given to be used towards class dues 
or class trips. 

Gary Hackett emphasizes that all 
students, if possible, should make an 
effort to support their class's func- 
tions by helping to bring in proceeds. 
"A small percentage of the class 
does not make up the class and a 
small percentage cannot support 
it," he remarked,

1986 has been a tremendous year 
for the Southbridge High Choral De- 
partment. Special acknowledge- 
ment has been given to some mem- 
bers individually, in addition to the 
group as a whole. 

In the Central District competition, 
Danny Carragher, Bruce Earnest, 
Gary Peck, and Kim Sczypien were 
selected to participate in the House 
Quartet. Other SHS students were 
chosen to be in the Central District 
Festival. This year's participants 
were, in addition to SHS' House Quar- 
tet, Maria DiGiovanni, Darryl La- 
fleche, Scott Peck, and Chris Diani. 

Individual merit was given to Dan- 
ny Carragher in selection for the All- 
Eastern Seaboard chorus, and Bruce 
Earnest for his solo audition for the 
All-New England Festival. 

The entire select and show choir 
has also been accepted to com- 
pete in the Festival of Music at Vir- 
ginia Beach this May.

It's a Small World 

The American International Youth 
Student Exchange Program (AIYSEP) 
has placed two students at SHS 
through Ms. Jowett, the director of 
the East Coast Chapter. 

Margarita Fernandez is an eigh- 
teen year old senior from Madrid, 
Spain. She spends most of her even- 
ings at the YMCA. On Saturdays, she 
helps out with concessions at foot- 
ball games. Margarita is involved in 
as many school activities. 

Jean-Philipp Sainer is a senior from 
Kreesbronn A.B. German. He is in the 
band and is learning to play the gui- 
tar and saxophone. 

Philipp has found that he dislikes 
the food. He feels the school system 
offers him a good education at the 
right price. Upon his arrival to the 
United States, Philipp experienced 
culture shock, but said, "As an ex- 
change student, you learn how to 
make mistakes, and how to correct 

them." Philipp dreams of travelling 
around the United States. 

In exchange for these students, 
we are sending two students to oth- 
er countries. 

Paula Couture is being hosted by 
Les Docteurs Rogues, pediatricians 
in Valencia, Spain. She has made 
new American and Spanish friends 
which makes the motto of AIYSEP, 
"Unity Throughout the World," stand 

Jodi Zalneraitis is leaving in Febru- 
ary to study in Australia for a year, 
When Jodi arrives, she will be hosted 
by a family that lives off the coast of 
Australia, on the Island of Tasmania. 

Ms. Jowett feels the interest in the 
hosting of foreign students has in- 
creased because parents want to 
expand their children's horizons and 
teach them that there really is a glo- 
bal world out there. 

Ms. Linda Jowett poses with her new-found foreign friends.

In Memory Of. 

Melissa A Lavallee 

."" "-■ •, " 

November 11, 1970-September 4, 1986 

On September 4, 1986 we exper- 
ienced a tragedy which took the life of 
one of our classmates. Melissa was a 
student, an athlete, a friend. She 
touched each one of us in her own way. 
Her death brought with it a personal mes- 
sage which each will carry forever. She 
lives within our books, our minds, our 
hearts. She will always remain as she 

"Ballerina, you must have seen her, 

dancin' in the sand. 
And now she's in me, always with me, 

Tiny dancer in my hand." 
— Elton John 

"The three of us shared everything 
together. In spite of the disagreements 
we sometimes had, the fun times made 
the bad seem minor." 

"Missy was taken from us unexpect- 
edly, but at least we have the memories 
of her to carry with us. If we could see 
her just one more time, we would tell her 
how much she means to us." 

"We miss you, Missy, and we'll never 
forget you. We love you!" 
— Maureen Doyle and Alyssa Ricci 

"Oh, don't sorrow, 
no, don't weep, 
for tonight, at last, 
I am coming home." 
— CJ2

A Winter Wonderland 

^iff"' V 

The bi-annual Winter Carnival was 
held in February. Competition 
among the classes reached a pinna- 
cle during the week long events. The 
highlight of the week was "The 
Gong Show," which featured a ce- 
lebrity panel of faculty members. 
Participation by members of all 
classes at SHS was the determining 
factor in the success of the carnival 
and all of its activities.

Singing Into Spring 

Dedication and hard work define 
the Show Choir. The group is com- 
posed of students who were select- 
ed after rigorous auditions. During 
the school year they perform for a 
variety of audiences. 

In May, a trip to Virginia Beach was 
a highlight. The Virginia Beach Festi- 
val of Music attracted 3,500 stu- 
dents who competed. Trophies for 
superior and excellent performance 
were awarded to the SHS partici- 
pants. At the spring concert this 
year, a variety of classical music was 
performed Py outstanding juniors 
and seniors from the area.

Physics in Motion 


Traditional and innovative vehi- 
cles were designed by members of 
Dr. Mary Cashmon's physic class. 
Combining their knowledge of phys- 
ics with their creativity, students 
were challenged to propel their ve- 
hicle forward in a competition to de- 
cide which would travel the furthest 
distance. Motors, balloons, and elas- 
tic bands were among the tech- 
niques used as propellants. 

Overall, the experiment was a 
success. All who were involved were 
pleased with the project.

Weather or Not? 

This 1987 spring season came in 
with a wimper and out with a bang! 
The start of the season was a series 
of rainy afternoons and rescheduled 
games. After a few weeks, the sea- 
son was finally underway. Due to the 
delay of the season, some teams 
were playing up to five games a 
week. Pioneer pride was rising and

there were many teams in conten- 
tion for the Districts. The Varsity soft- 
ball team started the season strong- 
ly with an 8-0 win over Woodstock 
Academy. They lost their District bid 
to Tantasqua in a heartbreaking 
game. The Varsity baseball team 
started the season with a string of 
losses, but ended the season strong- 

ly with big wins over North Brookfield 
and Tantasqua. The tennis teams, as 
well as the J.V. softball and baseball 
teams experienced a rebuilding 
year. A Border Conference banner 
was won by the golf team, who was 
knocked out of District play in the 
first round.

theme song, "Friends and Lovers."

A Time To Remember 

On Class Day, the seniors marched 
into the auditorium and all rose to 
honor the twenty-sixth graduating 
class of SHS. As the procession 
moved onward, encouraging smiles 
were exchanged by seniors and 
there was an air of joy and sadness 
felt by all. A presentation of athletic 
and academic awards was to fol- 
low. It was evident that the Class of 
1987 had united in their final year at 
SHS. Members of the class remi- 
nisced about their high school ex- 
periences. The class will and proph- 
ecy were read. The ceremony 
served as an inspiration to all who 

Graduation was held on the fol- 
lowing Sunday. Although the sky was 

overcast, the spirits of families and 
friends were not dampened. The Re- 
verand Guy M. Judkins delivered the 
invocation and benediction. Saluta- 
torian, Dina Pettinella and Valedic- 
torian, Karen Farrand spoke of the 
meaning of commencement. Spe- 
cial awards were presented by Su- 
perintendent Dr. Kenneth Johnson 
and Principal Mr. Joeseph Bialy. 
School Committee Chair, Mrs. Victo- 
ria Salce distributed diplomas to the 
students toward the end of com- 
mencement. Caps were thrown into 
the air and a feeling of accomplish- 
ment could be felt.

n the production of this 1987 Southbridge High year- 
book, many changes were undergone to renovate our 
past yearbooks which were beginning to seem "old 
hat." Under a brand new yearbook company Herff 
Jones Associates and under the leadership of our advi- 
sor Ms. Loconto, we were able to use our creativity and 
imagination to mold the Masterpiece that this book has 
become. There were many setbacks during its produc- 
tion, but we learned that if we pulled together as a staff, 
we could overcome any obstacles that stood in our 

At this time the editors would like to thank all of 
those people who participated in the yearbook to make 
it the work of art it is.
